The Benefits of an Alkaline Lifestyle


Leading the Way

The Alkaline diet is here to stay; it has helped many people with conditions that have not been improved with traditional medication. What we do know is that the Alkaline diet in its humblest form was conceived in the early 1900s, where it gained a lot of attention and merit due to the findings relating primarily to the causes of cancer.

Ever since the birth of the industrial age, man has managed to produce well over 100,000 artificial chemicals, most of which release toxins into the atmosphere during manufacture, or directly into our bodies by mass produced products.


Free Radicals

With the constant exposure to manmade toxins, our bodies are producing more free radicals than they would naturally, so healthy cells are being compromised by free radical cells, where they steal electrons to be able to survive. Eventually, this leads to a rapid decent of healthy cells which force the body into a state of acidosis. It is this state where cancer cells ferment sugars to create oxygen, enabling them to survive and reproduce.

Disease Prevention

Recent Clinical trials state if you follow the Alkaline diet’s 20% acidic and 80% alkaline food rule, your PH level should return to a neutral state of between 7.35 – 7.45, while at the same time, reducing the effects of inflammation and reversing the effects of free radical damage.

Clinical results have also shown that long-term use of the Alkaline diet, can reduce or reverse the effects of severe allergies, eczema, and diabetes, to the extent that medication is dramatically reduced or stopped altogether. Tests have also proven that as the blood is fully oxygenated and able to flow freely around the body and brain, this can lead to improved results of people with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s. A reduced chance of heart disease can also be achieved.

Weight Loss

As the diet consists of mainly fruits and vegetables, your body will now be receiving plenty of nutrients, vitamins, high fiber additions and antioxidants. The toxins will be flushed from your system, and the body will become detoxified without any risk of toxic build up re-occurring. There will now be an increase in the body’s metabolic rate, allowing it to convert the food into energy and burn excess fat more easily.

Feeling Great

As the number of toxins has been greatly reduced, you should find yourself no longer feeling bloated or lethargic. The body will now be benefiting from an increased intake of Vitamin-C and the body’s ability to produce its own natural collagen will have increased, as well. The condition of your skin will greatly improve, now becoming firmer with wrinkles and dryness being reduced. Additionally, you should find that concentration levels have increased and your mood will have overall improvement.

By following this diet for the long term, there have been no results of any adverse effects. Essentially, not only does it receive constant positive feedback from its followers, it also still gains a lot of attention to the benefits it can offer to people in a critical condition or disease state. Any additional weight loss seen is also an added bonus, of course!
